And that's when the man defended himself, pulling his own a revolver, a license to carry and shot. Garrett Foster dad right there now, one thing we got in, and I don't know that this is going to have a lot of bearing on the case, but it is against policy for lift or uber, and we don't know who he drove for this point, but that's against policy to have that gun, But it doesn't matter in the end, but it's just Right, so he may lose his job.

That's what we need, because there's going to be AH, Group of 200 people that say they witnessed this car plowing into a group of people. That's what they're going to say.

Yeah, and show, I think This is a group of folks that automatically are going to look for. That to be the case is forest trying to plow into is trying to most over and very, very aggressive.

"And see it yourself right there in the video. So In my mind. If you're looking for that kind of a confrontation, you're looking to be a tough guy intimidating. Bluff. Force people into your way of thinking or at least not opposing what it is you're doing. What are you doing? Another recipe for disaster and do that disaster unfold in Austin, Texas, Saturday night. You bet it did. And there's there. There are quite a bit of videos out there, and there's certainly some additional still photos that I've seen. That are starting to make this fairly clear. I think it's way too early to draw any firm conclusions. But the story that everyone agrees on Is that a car? Much like what happened on the way to 25 in Aurora, Colorado. Here you're talking about more of a City street in Austin. And again from the pictures. It doesn't look like 66 3 is kind of the Austin version of Bourbon Street in New Orleans. A lot of clubs on the restaurants a lot of live music. And again, I was bragging on Austin. I've been there a while and probably would like a little less today. Tonight have historically 16 wonderful just to walk down. Stand in the doorway of a club decide whether that's the kind of music you want to go in and listen, and it's every conceivable kind of music. There is Austin considers itself the music capital in Texas, probably the music capital of the Southwest, and it deserves that. It's wonderful, you jazz blues, anything you want to hear, That's what's wonderful about it. But hear this protest is going on in that general area, if not on six street itself. Is a car driving toward the protest. And as the car approaches here is where the stories diverge. Because what the driver told police by the way, the driver It is cooperating, has been interviewed by police and has been released by the way. That doesn't mean he can't be charged, won't be charged with a crime in the future. But for now he's been released. But he said he approached this crowd. And he said Garrett Foster. Because Jared Foster did not like the way this person was driving there toward the protesters. Then rushed at his vehicle. And according to the driver, Pointed his AK 47 multiple times at the driver. The driver, fearing he was about to be shot. Pulled a handgun. Fired several shots, striking Derek Foster three times. And he ultimately died in a local hospital. If you listen to some of the deal and protesters They'll tell you a completely different story. I'll tell you a story that Oh, no. The Garret Foster was there. Yeah, he was carrying a rifle, but he was there with his disabled wife was in a wheelchair. And as the car approached, the protesters scared, Foster was simply concerned about the safety of his disabled wife. So he was pushing her out of the way trying to avoid her being injured by this crazy motorists who was endangering the Lawful peaceful protesters. And trying to get her out of the way when the motorist randomly started shooting shots into the crowd and happen to strike period Foster three times kill him. The video and some of the Still photos that I've seen. Looks to me at this stage of the investigation put the light of that there because there is a fairly clear picture because he's fairly distinctive. He's got a kind of khaki colored hat on. He's got a black A balaclava. This just was down around his neck. He's pulled up over his face to uses a mask. It's pretty clearly him. He's got a fairly distinctive rifle with a skeletonized stock. And looks clearly to me anyway. To be him, Ames leveling his rifle directly at a core only if you feed away from and I got to tell you I'd consistently carry a firearm. I'm gonna have a firearm in my car if I look up, and there's naked, 47 pointed at my face is on. Sitting in my car. Under the law where I live in the law in virtually every place. That allows me to use deadly force to defend myself. Do I have a reasonable belief? I'm facing serious bodily injury or death? That's typically the test in most jurisdictions when somebody's leveling a rifle at my face. Hell, yes, there is. That's why you don't level rifle so people if you don't expect him to protect themselves. That's what happened. Don't Foster is now dead. I got to tell you when you put all those things together. That becomes a bit of a recipe that becomes not only arrest me for that to happen, it becomes almost inevitable when you put all those ingredients together. Get people that are angry. Give people are upset. People are frustrated getting people there that are openly attempting to intimidate people. And scare people. You have people on both side of that equation, who are armed? What's gonna happen? How is that? Not predictable? How is that not even inevitable. We're going to take a break. We come back. We'll talk about another couple of incidents. But then I think the discussion here It's why are all these factors coming together so consistently? Why is the same scenario playing out as between violent protesters and or violent counter protests or motorists? Why is that all playing out? What's the government doing and not doing that directly feeds into this And what's the trajectory of this issue? Where is this going to go? What are we likely to see? Going forward with things being the way they are. And with government being so hands off on this issue. We'll get into that The remainder of this hour shift gears a little bit from there.

What he is a former cars that are waiting on the green light right there at that intersection on Congress. When the lights are green, the car they kind of proceed, but because the marchers are in the middle of the street, marking, they start telling cars to stop even While they're trying to proceed with the green life, so marchers they're getting in front of the cars and marking, even though the light is green, and then someone started honking and Gibraltar turn his video recording for the car start sobbing.

You know it was about five or six more horse back and it was just bad down there. It was really bad. This's right. I mean, this is going on around America They were born on. You're right. This is what happens when you have a city council that has decided we're going Tio allow these kinds of protests which are not protest or violent. We're going to allow them to do it without getting a permit. We're going to tell the police to stand down, not do anything and allow these this to continue to happen. And then you're going to be shocked and you're going to actually go down like we've had. Some City council members do go down at this visual last night, and they were going to put it into this.

But there is a video and still image evidence that suggests that Mr Foster pointed his Long rifle at the car. You heard honking their C. They're marching in the streets, obstructing traffic against the law. And people want to get home. That's kind of how it happens Driving. You want to go home. You want to go to wherever you're going and you're right to protest does not infringe upon that person's right of moving about freely. Going about their lives. Will Garrett Foster was killed the second round of shots there. Five shots from one Gun and three shots return fire from another gun. The difference in the sound of the guns, one of them at least one of those last three shots hit Garrett Foster and killed him. The motorist. Who had the gun allegedly pointed at him and was fired upon. By somebody in the crowd. Returned fire. Thankfully, they missed the motorist with the 1st 5 shots and the other person returned fire, according to the reports. As of now, killing Garrett Foster. This is a direct result of They Democratic Party establishment not condemning What's going on. They tolerate it because it's useful to them. The protests without permits. You know, it's the right of the people to peace from peaceably shall not be infringed, not the right of the people to get together and riot. Throw things throw project that is not peaceful to start fires and buildings. To obstruct traffic is not peaceful. Out in Colorado, another incident Of people trying to block a freeway. And somebody trying to work their way through the crowd to get to where they're going. For whatever reason they don't need to justify why they want to get past the crowd. They don't have to care about your stupid cause. Somebody in that crowd open fired on that car missing that car. And hitting a member of their own group. Again Idiots with guns. And then this one. ABC News reports three members of an armed militia injured and shooting at Brianna Taylor protest. Now I can't tell you the name of the group as it involves the F bomb, but says three members of an armed militia were shot in an apparent accident at a protest calling for justice for Brianna Taylor in Louisville, Kentucky. On Saturday afternoon. All 33 people, all members of the N F A C. It's thie, not bleeping around coalition. It is apparently in Kentucky. There's a black militia group that calls themselves they not bleeping around coalition suffered non life threatening injuries, according to the Louisville Metro Police Department. The shooter was also a member of the militia militia. The group's founder, John Grandmaster, J. Johnson, told ABC News that members of the militia were inspecting firearms prior to the demonstration. When a woman's weapon was accidentally discharged. Now, maybe just one bullet. Maybe it's the magic bullet hit three people. Or maybe the weapon was discharged three times somehow. It doesn't really matter. But Democratic politicians are encouraging this encouraging this crab, fostering an atmosphere where people are bringing weapons with them to these protests. Now they're legally allowed to carry it. That's fine, but They're doing it out of fear. And they're firing on people. Out of fear that suddenly somebody is going to hurt them. And they end up hurting somebody else getting somebody else killed and still no Democrat has come out and condemned. These riots. These protests calmed it down, tried to quell it. Why? Because it's useful. To them. They want this. They need this. They crave this. They see this as Helping them. Come November. It's really amazing what's going on out there and that our so called political leaders are not. Caring about this. They don't give a damn You'd think that they would be concerned about Human life. But then they are not. They really are not Mayor Libby Shaft out in Oakland. Has been Mayor Libby Shaft. That name sounds familiar. She's the mayor who Seems like a lifetime ago. But like a year year and 1/2 ago, she was putting out official warnings to the illegal aliens in Oakland saying, Isis coming, there's gonna be ice raids. Look out. Now they were seeking people with federal warrants. This wasn't just your average normal, minding their own business, illegal aliens that Democrats would have you believe are all of them. These air people with federal criminal warrants for violent crimes. She warned them all. They got away. She was very proud of herself. She gave big speeches about how progressive she wasn't how wonderful it was that she was doing this. Well. The other day, her home got vandalized. Nash's is woke is what Khun B's a public official short of being out there and setting fires herself for throwing projectiles at police herself. She couldn't get more woke than this. And it still wasn't enough. As Oakland is considering de funding the police. They wanted to make their voices heard this mutant mob, so about 30 of them showed up at her house in the middle of the night. And they treated it like it was a federal courthouse. They were launching fireworks, and they spray painted everywhere. It's going to cost her A lot of money is a nice house. You're mayor of Oakland. It's not you. Not too many poor people running for mayor of anywhere. She got a dose of her own medicine. She after that. Referred to the group as committing acts of terrorism, terrorizing her and her neighbors..

You know, the work cause of this is our City Council has advocated the responsibility to manage these protest when you have unpermitted protests, you know when you get a permit to have a mass gathering that police protection is a big part of it, and by having people just gather in March, the police are unable to protect people They aren't able to block off.

They got to a safe distance, pulled over called 911 that that tells me head Yeah. Yeah, they had to be scared of mind. I think you guys in a seven pointed at all but some Yahoo, you know on the you know, on the road, but that guy's intent was to mow people down with his car. I don't think he would be calling 911 and saying, Here's what happened? No. You know, I think you would have had people hit. Yeah, I have a car and I decided to drive over.
